Indeed and entitlement of space comes from turning left when one steps onboard but comes at a cost.  Otherwise it's slumming it in economy for bargain basement fares and enjoying all the humilities that come with it.  

You want cheap travel that's the price you have to pay, personally  I  think the room  allowed for passengers on  economy flights  should be made  illegal. I do travel business  class and never  economy for the last 10 years or so as found it too painful physically , leg cramps elbows  pinned in and the more selfish  attitude of people these  days  the ones who  liked to walk by holding onto your headrest or standing talking in the aisle to a friend for the entire  flight.

Business  class avoids most BUT NOT  ALL  of that, there are still some <deleted> in there.

Fortunately, the newer seat move forward so you reduce your own leg room when you recline.

While their behavior was unacceptable, It was no worst than the European family behind us sticking their feet though the seat back thinking they were going to use my arm rest to rest their feet, or the Indian I saw masturbating on an Emirates flight or any number of other things I have seen in 44 years of flying.

 

And no, II didn't glean from it that putting your feet on other people's arm rests was a "European thing" or that it was common for Indians to pleasure themselves in flight.

 

Kids kicking the backs of seats is pretty universal, although an observant parent should stop the kid from doing it ,many don't.

Lets face it, unless you are at the front end of the aircraft, and by that I mean the flight deck, its just the most  horrible method of travel. Even First Class on a long haul flight can be boring and exhausting, unless you in a Singapore Airlines A380 Suite.

There may be others, but I recall Cathay Pacific doing this and so many complained I don't think they repeated it.

With all due respect that's rubbish! most pilots are bored out of their tiny's shortly after take off! And how many 10-12 hour flights you think they do? So you travel first class all the time do you? When I travel business flat seat which generally I pay for, my reasoning is to get a good sleep on the flight and hopefully avoid jet lag. The original subject was about reclining the seats in steerage. People need to be respectful of the people in front and behind that's all I'm no geometrist,  but if both recline the seat surely the gap is the same?? And if you are too fat to be unable to occupy a seat without inconveniencing others next to you. Quite simply, either go on a. diet , pay for a seat that fits you or even better don't travel at all!

Here's a silly idea. Make ALL seats recline automatically after seat belt light goes out, go upright during meal, and back to recline until landing. And also, make the seat belt un-unlockable during descent until the aircraft has come to a complete standstill. Sorted. I know, silly.
